This weekend, dear friends, will blissfully float in a careless party atmosphere. A vast majority of art people are chillin’ on a beach in Miami, but I have some good news for those of you who remained on guard at the fortress Bushwick. We have really good parties this weekend! And they are starting tonight!


Brooklyn Magazine Launch Party @ 3rdWard (8-11PM, free, RSVP)

Brooklyn Magazine is launching itself tonight at 3rd Ward! They have a winter Design issue out, and as I already received my copy in mail (yeah, physical magazine, it’s almost insane!), I can tell you it’s (again) awesome! They will have complimentary drinks from Jameson and Brooklyn Brewery, art installations from Jessica Yatrofsky and Industry of One and a DJ.


Potluck Dinner Party @ Weeknights (8PM, free with a dish, otherwise $2 suggested, RSVP)

Jen Hitchings is awesome! Not only is she our contributing writer and the winner of this week’s Facebook Takeover but she is also a gallery owner! Yes, this girl runs a small gallery called Weeknights from her studio at The Active Space. The shows she has been curating have been really good and, since she’s not in Miami, she decided to invite everybody over for a potluck dinner. Bring yourself, a dish and come have a good time at Weeknights.



Bushwick Ginger Social @ Church on 626 Bushwick Ave (10PM, $10 with RSVP, $15 otherwise)

Of course you love Bushwick Ginger Social, and so do we! After our joint party last month at Tutu’s to support hurricane victims, there is no way you can miss their tomorrow’s craziness at the church on 626 Bushwick Ave. Get ready for a ton of freshly squeezed ginger with whiskey and excellent DJs! In addition, the guys are promising amazing grilled goods and mistletoe. I’m sold!

Chocolate Factory Opening @ 288 Seigel (8PM, no RSVP but you should give them a heads up)

This is kinda awesome! A chocolatier Fine & Raw is opening a 2,500-square-foot factory and store two blocks from the Morgan L. I mean seriously, is there anything more awesome than this? Oh yeah, probably their opening party! The invite says to come wearing black tie, red tie, no tie, dressed up or down. “Come ready to eat chocolate. Trust the chocolate stars and hold nothing back.” I’m totally sold and totally in love!


SPANK’s 5 Year Anniversary Party CRZE (10PM-5AM, $15)

NYC Art Zine & Parties SPANK is celebrating 5 years of existence. How lovely! Congratulations to you and to us as well because we are all invited to the massive loft space at 341 Scholes to celebrate with them. So what awaits us there: DJs Sean B + Will Automagic, performances by Ana Matronic, Ab Soto, art installation, lights and more, more, more!
